I tried opening the webplayer on my iPad and it warned me that I’ve got the wrong kind of browser. I wrote a column last week about the new Amazon AppStore and how this signaled a start to some more direct and aggressive competition between Amazon and Apple as the elite seller of digital content and as the Great and Powerful Oz of your mobile experience. I think Andy has gone a bit Scoble on this one; a nice shiny new distraction caught in the right beam of sunshine will apparently change worlds. Sure, iPod, Kinect and iPad all were examples of successfully stella products overcoming so many pre-release doubts, but each of those were very natural and offered clear Everyman benefits from the moment you saw or touched one for the first time.
You’re at a friends house and have a sudden urge to share some album or song with them.
Personally I think that is a much greater boon than streaming to my iphone (well theoretically streaming to my iPhone), particularly given the bandwidth caps so many have already brought up. That said the current 5 gigs of free space is clearly not sufficient for the scenario I just mentioned but with competition storage will only get cheaper and larger and quality will only get better. For those who mention the iPod classic, I happen to own a 160 gig model and yes, my entire library fits on it, but there are so many times when I purchase new music and I don’t think to sync the iPod right away. Second, so you’re in the other room of your house, or mowing your lawn and want to stream something?
Third, most people with large music library tend to meticulously categorize, rate, organize, etc. It appears that Amazon is simply *blocking* MobileSafari from using Cloud Player, which should probably be pointed out since it’s certainly something Apple would get called out on. 2) There is no API that us developers can use to make the system work on say iOS, or OS X (the browser interface for uploading 1000 files does not cut it), linux, chrome, google docs, ford, honda, etc etc.
First, go to the Amazon Cloud Player page and log into your account, then click Upload Your Music. Keep in mind Cloud Player only supports MP3 and AAC file types that are not protected by DRM.
After the MP3 Uploader is done scanning your iTunes library, go through and check or uncheck the playlists and artists it finds. After you your iTunes music is uploaded to your Amazon Cloud Player account, grab your Kindle Fire and tap Music.
Apple’s iOS ecosystem has never been as closed off to non-iTunes digital music stores as it may seem.


Now Amazon has raised the game in its efforts to target iOS users by launching a mobile-web version of its MP3 store. Amazon is an old hand at circumventing Apple’s walled garden due to its Kindle e-books store, which was built into its iOS Kindle e-reading app until Apple barred that feature. Apple Music is continuing its global rollout apace, with a launch late last week in South Korea.
Today, Amazon enabled two new features to their site: Amazon Cloud Player and Amazon Cloud Drive.
Annnnd everything you purchase via Amazon MP3 (from now on, anyway) is automatically added to your Cloud Drive and doesn’t count towards your storage limit. The player loads up, I can see my music, I can tap a Play button, it selects the track…but nothing happens. It’s a much simpler and more robust way to cloud-stream your online music purchases than anything else going at the moment.
Also it is worth noting, at least for the first 5 gigs this is completely free, particularly relevant to amazon MP3 purchases from hear on out.
Uploading a couple of PDF files (from my Mac using Safari), it stripped the names and left me with the .pdf extension only!
These tools allow third parties the ability to upload and download from an S3 account (with your permission) things like archived emails, tweets, image services, etc etc. It indexes and creates nice previews to create a desktop like experience on the Mac, iOS and Web. I’m hoping that Apple has something similar in the works, however what I wNt is a little different from streaming alone. If you have more songs to upload, click the Browse for More Music link and manually add them. He also has contributed to other notable tech sites including InformationWeek and How-To Geek. Even attracting a small chunk of Apple’s 500m iOS users away from iTunes could be significant for Amazon, although the short-term pain for Apple will be limited. You can import your iTunes library or other music on your computer and listen to it anywhere, without having to sync. But good news if you have an Android phone: the Amazon MP3 app will stream alllllll of your content just great.


I too have all the music I need on my iPhone, so that even in the 3G void I can still hear my tunes. Public WiFi is often so over crowded I cannot tell you how often the bandwidth is often constricted to something slower than old dial-up speeds, less than 56k. Or if you want more control, stop the process and browse to the music you want to upload manually. The bigger picture, though, is of Amazon bolstering its position as a credible alternative to iTunes. This is two evenly-matched fighters and the outcome of their battle can only benefit consumers. Streaming services seem so much less worthy of another subscription payment than cloud backup. And everyone else has already mentioned the better model for home use, with fast assumedly faster broadband and wifi- local streaming could not help but be faster. It’s almost here, but cloud drive looks, at least for now to be a step in the wrong direction.
In other words you could store your files on some LAN connected drive (like a Drobo) that would act as the server.
And you’ll have to pay a yearly fee for all the extra storage it would take to house your entire music catalogue.
Then add to this being able to automatically back up your collection to the cloud, with iTunes purchases automatically being transferred when bought. When you’re on the road, you could connect to this cloud library through home sharing as well. Even the 5 free gigs, while nice, basically amount to having an iPod nano with me at all times.
